Food Fight

Food Fight was one of my favorite Atari games.  I remember playing it quite a bit with my older brother when we were young.  For those unfamiliar with the game, the object of each level is to eat the ice cream cone on the opposite side of the screen before it completely melts.  Standing in your way are four chefs, who pop out of holes in the ground, as chefs are wont to do.  The player controls Charley Chuck, and can fend off the chefs by throwing food at them which can be picked up from the various food items all over the level.  For some reason, I’ve been thinking about this game a lot lately, and did a quick painting of the victorious protagonist.
